Loved the trail. Its pretty crowded though.

There are a lot of trails in this area and it wasn't well marked. It was a busy trail, though, so we just watched to see where everyone was going. It can get a little crowded up there, so be patient if you want to try out a particular piece of "furniture". The view is spectacular.

What a hike! This one passes through a variety of scenery and terrain. There is no way we could have made it the last leg without our spikes. The trail seemed much longer than 4.4 miles. Loved the views of the reservoir and mountains. The waterfall was more beautiful than I had imagined. Wear good shoes! This hike is no joke. We saw a family with cheap flip flops and a baby strapped on one of their backs trying to scale those rocks.

Nice short hike and conveniently accessible from University

Holy pain in the butt! Doing this hike is no easy task. The trail gets confusing once you start the scramble to the top, so when all else fails, just keep climbing!

Wow this hike was more than expected. Beauty everywhere. Loved every single point of it. A cute little reservoir, overlook of sandy and the waterfall at the end. The last leg of the hike is strenuous but keep it going totally worth it. Carry loads of water. Bottom line don’t back out. Go do it.

Beautiful hike. Fairly easy till the last 3/4 of a mile. Lots of rocks and steep climb.

This is a moderately difficult hike with great pay off at the end.

This hike is NOT 3 miles. About 6 to the very top. Beautiful but pretty challenging hike. Spikes are a must right now

Worth the climb. Nice view of the water fall.

Moderate Hike with awesome view!!!

Started trail this morning around 6:30. Trail is very fun right now with the right equipment. Muddy/water flow on trail, 1.5 or so, ice and snow. Not pot holing early morning until you get to lake. With sun up at top of trail minor pot holing. Equipment suggestions: microspikes (its very icy right at least half way up), trekking poles and gloves. I ran in baseball cap, tank top and tights. Hands even with wool gloves got very cold (started to hurt), until getting to top. Super fun and technical at present.

Pretty slippery at some parts. No shade. Nice sunset view of the city

Gorgeous hike!

I used to live here for 5 yrs and I work out a minimum of 3xs/wk... and had to pause for a sec due to the incline. So "Easy" I wouldn't consider this. I'd say a "moderate" trail, because if you have any type of knee problems the incline/decline may be tough for you. (Know this because I was with someone in the past who has this, so I'm aware of the terrain of trails).
Love that it's a quick hike to an awesome view!! So worth it - fast gratification!

One of my favorite hikes of all time. Always such a good time. Have gone multiple times and always look forward to going again!

This hike was amazing! I did it this past weekend and didn’t need spikes or snow shoes (the snow was packed down enough). Got super sunburnt on my face so wear sunscreen!

I only went to the overlook (which I think is not accurately marked on this map...I was right where the GPS said it was and that spot was not a place to see everything, there was, however a beautiful rocky area overlooking everything just before the spot marked on this app). There was still some snow, but I survived in sneakers. Gorgeous views of the canyon at the top and I loved the part that was close to the river (and at times IN the river...be prepared to get wet!)

Great short run — steep, rolling hills and really steep — everything you need.

We went up today and it was beautiful. Be prepared for lots of snow on the upper trail! I had my yak tracks but others on the trail did not and had to turn around before the falls. The last .5 is steep! My legs and lungs were burning but it’s so worth it to see the falls in snow and with less people than summer.

Short but semi steep trail. Very popular. Great spot to watch sunset over SL valley. Trail was dry. Dog friendly trail, with many friendly dogs. Street parking at trail head with 3 hour limit. Should be plenty of time for this trail.

Neffs canyon is my dogs favorite!

The last mile or so of the trail still has packed snow, making the hike down a little slippery. I didn't have spikes and managed fine with good hiking shoes and a wooden stick I found near the trail =). The first and last parts of the trail will get your legs burning, but the view at the end is totally worth it. There's plenty of beautiful spots along the trail to stop and rest and enjoy the beauty.

Didn’t take the prior reviews seriously about the necessity of ice spikes, but stopped in REI for some YakTrax just to be safe. Glad I did. You won’t reach the summit without some extra traction. Did not bring trekking poles or running gloves, but would recommend both. If you can handle the ice/slush, the views are amazing.

Went up yesterday, still snow/slush on the last bit, tricky on the way down without spikes but doable. A great short but intense hike.

I hiked this trail a couple of times last year (2017) just lovely views and a feeling of accomplishment, specially if have to do it with a bunch of wining kids!! But overall I loved it!! Can’t wait to do it again!!

Well, I haven’t hiked in eight months. Needless to say this hike kicked my ass. We puffed and vented all the way to the summit despite the treacherous ice. The first 1.5 miles of this hike are by far the hardest as they are the steepest. Hiked on 4/8/18 and no spikes/crampons were needed to reach the summit.

very fun.

Went during the snowstorm; bring your spikes or you won’t get too far! Lake was still covered in snow and not very visible, but really pretty nonetheless. Definitely worth the hike up.

Hiked in the rain. Nice and easy. The dog loved it. Recommend dry months, you walk in a river bed for a minute
